Stamp set by Alice Melvin

Colette got a beautiful stamp set from her aunt Jane who lives in London. She's obviously too small to play with it but I'm not !
I love the illustration of the top cover with its aqua green. It slides open revealing 24 wood stamps letters with a rubber pad and a 4 colors inker. We owe these A to Z alphabet stamps to the Edinburgh-based illustrator and designer Alice Melvin. Alice has worked with the Tate on an accompanying range of children's products, and her second children's title Counting Birds has just been released.
You can purchased both at the Tate's gallery shop or in her online shop. Talking about stamps, I couldn't resist to also show you that cutest little Japanese set from Leslie that I found in her "good-ness" shop on Etsy.
